Optimum Nutrition BCAA 5000 Powder
Optimum Nutrition BCAA 5000 Powder is a BCAA supplement that can be consumed alone - i.e. without adding carbs, juices, whey, or anything similar.
With an acceptable price per gram of BCAA, this helps increase daily BCAA intake, without adding more 'ballast' calories.

Powder comes in two flavors: Fruit Punch and Orange. There are 40 servings in each container consisting of 3 grams of carbs, 2.5g of Leucine, 1.25g of Isoleucine, and 1.25g of Valine. Also, there is an unflavored, 60 servings package.
Optimum BCAA 5000 Powder mixes well in a shaker. If you don't like too sweet drinks add more water - give it a try the first time you buy this product at least few hours before workout. This is just a precaution - most people don't need to do this, but better safe than sorry.
Price is ok - since there are 40 servings in the container, that means that there is around 200g of BCAA in 400g of powder. Some products having 400g of pure BCAA are more expensive, but they do have more BCAA per container. And that BCAA powder is almost impossible to drink alone (been there done that :o) ).
Of course, the unflavored version contains much more BCAA per gram of powder and it is more cost-effective than flavored versions.
Optimum BCAA 5000 Powder - highly recommended for anyone on a strict diet wanting to lose as much fat as possible without jeopardizing hardly gained muscles. Powder should be taken before and during workout - in PWM one can add some tasteless BCAA to whey, creatine, fast carbs, C vitamin ...
